THE KRIT MOTOR CAR COMPANY WAS FORMED IN DETROIT, MICHIGAN IN 1909.

THE KRIT MOTOR CAR COMPANY WAS FORMED IN DETROIT, MICHIGAN IN 1909.  THE KRIT WAS DESIGNED BY COMPANY PRESIDENT KENNETH CRITTENOON WHOSE NICK NAME WAS "KRIT" HE LIKED THE NAMES SO WELL HE KEPT IT FOR HIS NEW AUTOMOBILE MANUFACTURING COMPANY.  THE KRIT COMPANY CHOSE THE "HOOKED CHRISTIAN CROSS" COMMONLY MISTAKEN FOR THE "SWASTIKA" LOGO AS THE SYMBOL FOR THEIR AUTOMOBILE LONG BEFORE IT WAS ADOPTED BY THE NAZI REGIME IN GERMANY.  THIS SYMBOL WAS USED BY ANCIENT CULTURES ALL OVER THE WORLD AS A SYMBOL OF THE BUDDHIST RELIGION, ON ARTIFACTS FROM GREECE, PERSIA, AND CHINA AND EVEN TO THE PRE-COLUMBIAN AMERICAS.  THIS LOGO WAS CHOSEN TO REFLECT THEIR HOPES IN ATTRACTING GOOD LUCK FOR THEIR AUTOS AND BUSINESS.  IRONICALLY, THIS SYMBOL, CHOSEN TO ATTRACT GOOD FORTUNE NEARLY WIPED OUT ALL EVIDENCE OF THE KRIT AUTOMOBILE.  WHEN ANTI-NAZI FEVER SWEPT THE UNITED STATES DURING WORLD WAR II, NEARLY ALL OF THE OVER 6,000 KRIT AUTOS ORIGINALLY BUILT BETWEEN 1909 AND 1915 WERE DESTROYED AND RECYCLED INTO METAL FOR THE WAR EFFORT.  ONLY A HANDFUL OF KRIT AUTOS ARE REGISTED WITH THE AMERICAN AUTO ASSOCIATION, AND IT IS DOUBTFUL IF MANY MORE STILL EXIST.  THIS RARE KRIT WAS RESTORED ABOUT 20 YEARS AGO AND IS IN EXCELLENT RUNNING CONDITION.  LOTS OF NICE BRASS ACCESSORIES AND "KRIT SCRIPT" EMBLEMS.  FUN TOURING CAR.  COMPLETE VIDEO OF THIS VEHICLE AVAILABLE FOR $50, REFUNDED WITH VEHICLE PURCHASE, AND INCLUDES OVERNIGHT SHIPPING OF VIDEO.  CALL OUR CLASSIC CAR DIVISION AT 815-385-8408 FOR VIDEO AND/OR VEHICLE INFORMATION.
